Whimsical Wednesday Card


Happy Wednesday!

Today I have a fun little card to share with you.  I figured this would be fun to give someone with a nice mug and some apple cider or something else to relax and enjoy the crisp fall days with.

This is for the new challenge over at Whimsical Wednesday that starts today.  The lovely Cathryn came up with the challenge called Fall Cuties and you need to use an animal on your project.
 
I have a standard A2 sized card.

I got my adorable squirrel from Create a Critter and gave him some googly eyes.

I used some brown paper that reminded me of bark a little bit - seemed "woodsy" to me.

The gorgeous ribbon is Shabby Crinkled Ribbon from Prairie Bird Boutique.  This color was from the Little Boo set.  There are lots of gorgeous color combos to choose from.

The red paper sort of looks like leather or something.  Kind of a cool pattern.  I used my Stampin' Up Scallop Edge border punch along the bottom.

For the sentiment I used a stamp from Tanner, who calls himself Mr Cricut Crazy.  This is from his Summertime Fun set.  It is pretty cool for a young boy to have his own stamp line :)  They are top of the line quality too.  Be sure and visit his blog to see what he's been up to.

Make sure you check out Whimsical Wednesday today to see all the designer's sneak peeks and pay them a visit.  You can also enter your own project!  Super fun :)
